Stories from the month of July

Happy summer! Here’s some stuff to read.

• Liz Argall’s “Blunt Force Trauma Delivered by Spouse,” in the much-anticipated This is How You Die (the second Machine of Death anthology) is “a graphic, painful character study of an Australian farmer in a passionate but abusive relationship, fighting to rebuild her life in spite of her eponymous prediction” (Tasha Robinson of AV Club).

• Cat Rambo has two stories out: “On the Big-fisted Circuit,” a story about people fighting in giant robot suits, is up at Daily Science Fiction, and “Elsewhere, Within, Elsewhen” is in Beyond the Sun, an anthology. It’s about personal struggles in a distant colony. Also, talking rocks.

• JM Sidorova’s debut novel, The Age of Ice, was published this month, along with a companion story called “The Colors of Cold.” I haven’t read my copy of the novel yet, but the reviews are hot! So to speak.
